As if being flooded out wasn't enough

As the flood waters subside, they leave pools of water - the perfect breeding ground for tiger mosquitoes. We are advised to make sure there are no such breeding grounds around our houses.

In Bigastro, the Council have already engaged a company to fumigate public areas where the standing water would provide places where the females will lay eggs.

As we know, it is the females who will bite to suck the blood they need to give them strength. Tiger mosquito bites are particularly nastty.
